I’ve been playing a lot with my 46″ Umbrella (both reflective and shoot thru), 24″ x 24″ softboxes a lot, and after a lot of reading, I was really inspired by the the one and only Todd Owyoung’s approach in building his own beauty dish. Anyway, two weeks ago, I started going to dollar stores and hardware stores and look for the right parts and had my good friend Kevin from Violets and Viruses to help me build this beast.
Like Todd, I own the EzySoft softbox so I just used the Lastolite’s hotshoe mount to make my life easier. I bought 3 more screw nuts so I can easily remove and reinsert the mount.
Here are some photos of the beauty dish during construction
